Also Is there anyway of previewing your docs once uploaded? I can see the PDF name but no option to view the actual document?
The ability to view uploaded documents on the UKVCAS site after upload was not available the last time I applied about a year ago, you could only see the file name. You kind of just have to trust that what you uploaded is what they will be able to see.
I'm just a guy on the Internet who immigrated to the UK. My opinions are based on my experience and interpretation of the immigration rules and should not be considered legal or immigration advice; your mileage may vary.

I put mine under Proof of Identity/Travel History, assuming the intent of providing the expired passport is to show the travel history. If you are providing them for another reason, another category may be more appropriate. As long as the file name clearly describes what it is and it is in a category that could reasonably be considered applicable for the document, you shouldn't have any issues. There is a thread below that may help a bit in picking categories.

Hello Geoeng

I was adding it as I thought they required to see all passports including expired? There was Specific reason other than that. So do I not need to upload this?

Many thanks

If the initial visa was affixed on that expired passport then it might be necessary to upload it otherwise only supply it if the application form/checklist asks that.

Hello Guys

I was under the impression that the applications were being processed in date order. I have noticed on the timeline forum many applications being processed and biometrics done after we had done ours and these people have already got there approval and application granted. Anyone know why this may be the case if they are supposed to be working in date order?

Many Thanks

That is bit indecipherable because of the erratic service and varying individual cases. But you can continue to check the latest development at the following link, and also there is a live text commentary is in place at various section of the board that may mollify you as you aren't alone in this boat.

Hello Seagul

I just went on the site and this is what is being said and what I was referring to;

After you have submitted your application via the IDV app or at a UKVCAS appointment, all supporting information is sent to UKVI within 24 hours.

UKVI have told us that they aim to deal with ALL applications in date order. This means that your case will be dealt with by UKVI based on the date of your registration with UKVI/UKVCAS.

If you have been selected to use the IDV app, please do so.
UKVI have assured us that booking an appointment does not mean that your application will be processed more quickly.

Obviously they are not doing it in date order at all

Due to varying nature of each case the date order won't work.

Hello Guys

We submitted our docs on the app 01/09, still not had a result, looks like people who are going for face to face are getting a much quicker turn around. I can get an appointment at the end of this month face to face.

Just wanted your opinions on weather or not you think it’s worth doing this?

Many thanks

No harm in booking an appointment to check the results but these still might not be the same as you are expecting.

Then you can carry on waiting if you can't afford or get a free appointment.

Hence why exercising patience may be a good thing. And I assure you not all in-person application is getting a quick turn around.
If you still want to, the trade is the booking fee for appointment if it pans out as you hinted above.

Yes that’s very true, just very frustrating seeing people’s visas being granted who have submitted everything afterwards, but am fully aware We are not the only ones in the position

Hello Guys

I have just been sent this

We can see from our systems that we were awaiting receipt of your biometrics in order to progress your application. Due to the operational delays incurred by the COVID-19 crisis, we are experiencing delays in all areas of UKVI; including the uploading of biometrics to our systems.

Your biometrics have now uploaded to our systems. The decision-making team have been made aware of this, along with your escalation; however, they now need time to consider your application. They will be in contact in due course.

Your patience is greatly appreciated at this unprecedented time.

Is this something we have to upload or something internally they are waiting on?

Many Thankd

Seems a generic email where they are also confirming its receipt & uploading
